Excellent show! Another one of my favorite shows from that period is 12/12. I highly recommend giving it a listen if you're not familiar with it yet. The I'll Take A Melody will make you melt away in your chair, and the Ride Mighty High (which is actually one of my favorite JGB songs) is great version. And as with all '76 Midnight Moonlights, the one from 12/12 is just gorgeous.

Well, I feel like a huge idiot now. It turns out the 12/12 show I have is actually the 12/22 show you were referring to. I got the show from a friend who must have mislabeled it by accident, or just had the incorrect date to begin with. They didn't even play a show on 12/12. Damn mislabeled music. I'll find another JGB to recommend. Sorry for getting your hopes up. Listen to the Ride Mighty High again and you'll forget about it! One of those songs that makes me have to do a little dance no matter where I am and what I'm doing. Such feel-good music.

Don't feel like an idiot, you just confirmed my high opinion of the 12/22 show :) I agree the I'll Take a Melody is superb - it's a sort of unusual version of that song - I want to listen to it again, some other little riff is going on in there at one point that I wanted to pay attention to, if my damn job weren't always interfering.
